Navy Bill Ingram was one of a long line of Ingrams to perform at the U.S. Naval Academy at the turn of the 20th Century. Ingram began his coaching career at William & Mary where, in 1922, he charted a 6-3-0 record before moving on to Indiana the next year. At the Hoosier helm for three seasons, Ingram's teams finished with a combined 10-12-1. Then, in 1926, Ingram returned to his alma mater and promptly led the Midshipmen to a 9-0-1 record. The only smudge on an otherwise perfect record was a 21-21 tie with arch rival Army. Yet, the Middies claimed a share of the national title. He remained at Navy for the next four years and compiled an overall record of 32-13-4 while there. The University of California suddenly took interest in Ingram's coaching talents, and Ingram was westward bound. His 1931 Golden Bears finished 8-2-0 and his 1934 team - his last as a coach - went 6-6. All told, Ingram coached a total of 13 seasons at four schools, and logged a career record of 75-42-9.
